Ever since the Movement Control Order began, university students were in a quandary as their academic just has been unstable. Soon after, online learning started for them and while it was frowned upon, the students accepted it in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Students most affected by this were final year students who needed to finish their projects and somehow graduate.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) announced that all university lectures must be conducted purely online with face to face lessons until the 31st of December. There will be however exceptions given to five academic categories of students.

The five categories are:

IMMEDIATELY

  1. Post-graduate students who are in research mode whether in public or private universities. This relaxation is effective immediately IF the students have to be physically present at the labs, workshops or design studios for specialized equipment.

SUBJECT TO THE CMCO DEADLINE

  1. Final year undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma students or are required to carry out clinical work, practicals, laboratory work, workshops, work in design studios, or are in need of specialised equipment can have their PDP (Teaching and Learning) on campus starting on the 1st of July.
  2. Final year students with no internet access and in a non-conducive environment for learning will be allowed to return on the 1st of July as well.
  3. Students with special needs who participate in the Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) education programme at polytechnics and community colleges who need PDP for their learning difficulties will be allowed from the 1st of August.
  4. New students public going to all private institutions, polytechnics as well as community colleges, for the certificate, foundation and diploma levels for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) leavers, as well as the Bachelor’s Degree programme intake for Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM) leavers and its equivalent will be done in stages.

The students outside this five-category weren’t really pleased with these announcements as their studies are getting delayed and disrupted as well.

While students are allowed to return if their learning environment isn’t conducive, it’s only limited to final year students. Some students even had enquiries if this will mean a reduction in their fees.

“Will the fees be reduced? So many facilities are not being used through online learning and in fact students are spending more for their internet usage.”

Bangmar

“MOHE needs to review this statement. Why not conduct a survey first to get a rough idea on how students are dissatisfied with online learning. I don’t think all students find this situation conducive. Please find a solution that satisfies everyone.”

Here’s their official statement:

99142331 2874705795961734 5721452799745589248 N 100771539 2874705865961727 6857842142006476800 N

While the new SOP will be beneficial to some, we have to admit that there will be students left behind. What do you think of this statement by MOHE? Let us know in the comments section!
